      I have a complicated Vertical Banding Gastroplasy from 1987 and have developed some issues that are weakening me to a point of barely getting thru my day. I was able to speak with Dr Blackstone along with my partner and all are questions and concerns were answered and we left feeling confident and total satisfied in the choice of the surgeon to make the repairs needed to get me back on my feet
